Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiger Fan Nice hotel
Hotel was clean and quite. There were four or five cloth caddies available. Breakfast was real good. Parking area could be a little larger.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weidawei Lots of room
Both bathroom and bedroom were big. Bathroom had lots of granite. Room was clean and comfortable. Only bad thing was parking space was shared with other hotels, and it could be full. Overall very nice hotel with great value.

Great hotel. The only thing I would recommend and this is the same for all Holiday Inns is better biscuits that are not hard. Great staff and nice facilities!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mommyf2 No Hot Water
Before booking with this place, first find out if the hotel is sold out! Their water heater cannot accommodate anyone when the hotel is fully booked.
My kids and I arrived Saturday night. My little girl took a shower in freezing cold water. The following day, it was the same thing. I went to the front desk and the clerk told me, "Well the hotel is sold out and we can't keep up with the demand." NO apology, NO compensation, NOTHING!
2 stars because of free parking, complimentary breakfast, spacious rooms, walking distance to the football stadium
No hot water, microwavable bacon was served, scrambled eggs were tasteless and powdery, didn't have any honey or lemon for tea, no butter
Definitely not worth the price I paid!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dkjbs Cruise Shuttle Disappointing
Room, breakfast , and staff were very good. Only problem was cruise shuttle service. Someone screwed up and overbooked the shuttle. Ended up cramming 14 large adult people and all their luggage into a 11 Pax van. Two people on the floor and one on the lap. The 25 minute ride seemed like an eternity and resulted in several sore backs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tata47 Great stay !!
We were welcomed as soon as we entered the door. We were using frequent IHG guest points and were treated as if we really were very special to the hotel. I have been told , in the past, they were "free" points, but as businessmen know these are "earned" points and this hotel recognized that. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The safety features were reassuring. The staff was the most commendable we have experienced. Thank you everyone!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Management
This is a well managed property, where the General Manager has a continual presence at all times of day. He is very friendly as are all of his staff as he sets the example.
The Stadium HIE is my home away from home when I visit Tampa.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1Baseballfan Excellent staff, great location and value for our money spent
My wife and I arrived from a day at Epcot for a short overnight stay to catch a flight home. We arrived just in time for the happy hour which saved us money plus trying to find a place to eat. We wanted to drop our rental car off that night and take the shuttle in the a.m. Felicity was super at the front desk. Love that Aussie accent! She gave us directions on how to get to the airport and drop off our car and where to go to get picked up by the hotel shuttle. She even called back to let us know the approximate time the shuttle would be there and she was spot on!!! The next morning we enjoyed the breakfast before taking the shuttle back to the airport. Again the shuttle was on time. No issues. We recommend this property to anyone who is customer service oriented and appreciates value for their hard earned money.

Sorry but this hotel is old and needs a facelift. We only stayed one night. We moved to another hotel--- less expensive and so much better!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mkd54 Short Stay
My stay at Holiday Inn Express was short, as I arrived in the evening for a very early flight the next day. Since your airport shuttle didn't begin service until later than I needed, Felicity arranged a cab for me without hesitation. She was friendly and positive and is a definite asset to this hotel. I would definitely stay again, though I hope with more time to enjoy the hotel next time.

Bed was comfortable and the service was great, I will stay here again when traveling in the area. This is a great set-up for leaving your car while crusing. I will do it again when in Tampa.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sassycass Staff and Housekeeping
The gentleman that check us in was not personable. He did not extend what I call southern hospitality.
As far as houskeeping, they did not empty my ice bucket and give me a new liner. In addition, they did not give me new cups.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JUANOLAS Bucanners great hotel
Got this room for rewards, I got a huge suite.
Dont let the surroundings fool you this is a very nice hotel.
The staff is efficient, the rooms are clean and big and the view to the rear side is a nice lake with ducks.
Is on walking distance to the Bucs stadium so you save some on parking if going to the game.
Has a nice atmoshpere on game day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beachgirl33 Breakfast
The breakfast provided was well rounded, something for everyone. That's the good news. The room was very noisy, it needed new carpet (badly) and the pillows were very old. The room itself, was outdated as was the decor. Shuttle service was obsolete. Waiting 45 min. to get to the hotel frm the airport was too long. Remember to make your reservations for the shuttle well in advance otherwise it will be a taxi. Front desk lady was very helpful, not so with the gentleman. Found out later he needed training. Holiday Inn Tampa needs to have an "undercover boss " visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by f401 Comfortable Hotel
I've stayed at this property 6 times over the past few months and overall the stays have been decent. It's in a very convenient location. One thing I think the staff needs to look at asap is the A/C air filters. It seems like they haven't been changed in years due to the odor. 4 out of the 6 times I've stayed there, I've been rooms with these A/C units with bad filters.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by njd13 Great Service
I spoke with Joseph on the phone as I needed to cancel hotel I had booked. He made my reservation and assited me with check in quickly when I arrived. I can't remember the shuttle drivers name. He provided great service as well. I was going to the football game and he noticed my bag was not clear before we left and let me know they would not let me in the stadium. His observation saved me time and frustration that would have occured.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lezley65 Loved this hotel
I stayed here four nights while taking classes downtown. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The free breakfasts were great, open at 6 for all the early birds. My room was fantastic, very clean, new, and the bed was very comfortable. Also, I was a little concerned about it being on Dale Mabry,(busy, busy street) but when I woke up, I could hear NOTHING, it was so peaceful. I loved that.
The building is set back from the street far enough to give it a 'country 'charm and appeal, down to the little ducks in the pond behind the building.
Being on Dale Mabry, it was easy to grab a bite on the way "home" from classes.
Thank you to everyone who works at the Holiday Inn Express on Dale Mabry for making my stay comfortable, relaxing, and very enjoyable.
I will see you again soon.
Bonita Springs, FL.
Yes, I will absolutely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunshine66 Top rating hotel with exceptional service and quality
Visiting Tampa for the first time. Best decision ever! The Holiday Inn Express was the perfect place. Upon entering the hotel we are immediately welcome by professional sharp looking individual at the front desk. She is courteous and knowledgeable. She given us all the information about everything in the hotel and places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this location to our friends & family.

My stay was not a good one because the water in the bathroom was not hot. I informed the front desk immediately and I was told that it would be taken care of immediately. Well, much to our surprise, it was not. We had to take cold showers. I will not come back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Louise09 Slow shuttle
We waited 1 1/2 hours for the 10 minute shuttle ride from the airport. Driver indicated there was a Buccaneers game that day and they were slammed. Hotel knows when the football games are scheduled--put more drivers on your shuttle. Two shuttle buses were sitting in the hotel parking lot. Bad start to our vacation.
